Newsletter - 7th September 2018

Friday, 7th September 2018   Dear Parents, Carers and Friends, Welcome Back! I am glad to see so many of you have returned safely after the summer holidays. A very big welcome to our Reception children and to their families. At St Joseph’s we have had a productive first week. The children have been getting used to their school routine. Our after school clubs offer is in the process of being sent out to you and the teachers are preparing ‘Termtalk’ and the RE Newsletter so you know what is being taught this term.

Also, a reminder that holidays are not to be taken in term time. Holidays in term time cannot be authorised so please do not buy the tickets and then let the school know you are going! If there is a genuine family event or tragedy the school will always show compassion. If your child requires medication notification to the school needs to be updated annually. Please make sure you tell the office if there are any changes to your child’s medical history/medication.   At the end of last term I sent a letter to parents saying that St Joseph’s has committed leaders, teachers, governors and clergy who are dedicated to the school and I repeat, now, at the beginning of the new academic year that we expect everyone in our midst to treat each other with respect, have tolerance for each other’s differences and not to bring discord into…
